I don't have anything new out this week, so I thought I'd talk about something else.
I have a long running love of audio books. Lately, when I haven't been feeling at my best, they're a god-send.
Here are some of my favourites...
I love all Pratchett. My favourite to read is a different title, but there's something about this one on audio that makes it quietly perfect. The Welsh accents for the dawarfs probably doesn't hurt. (It's also one of the more stand alone-ish Discworld titles. Although it's even better if you know the other books set there.)
I admit that I find a lot of the classics to be easier to listen to than to read. A good narrator really brings Jane Austen to life for me.
Fantastic sci-fi. If you only know it from the movies, the book is in a whole different league. I've never actually "read" it, but I've listened to it well over a dozen times over the years.
This isn't one of the most popular of Georgette Heyer's romances, but I think it's one of her best. It's not all hearts and flowers, it's realistic and, I think, all the more perfect because of it. My other favourite of her books in audio is Arabella. It's equally perfect, but in exactly the opposite way - pure escapism. I still laugh out loud every time I listen to it.
I have to confess, that I haven't listened to a huge amount of erotica or erotic romance on audio. But I do have a few out.
I have a free short story that has been made into an audio story. You can listen to that free on youtube below.
Total-e-bound has also released the stories that I've submitted to various anthologies as audio books.
Does anyone else here like audio books, erotic or otherwise? Let me know!
